Priya am going to try this today; will update you. Thanks!

Perfect Priya; they came out really well. I need to use really 'sour' yogurt/buttermilk. The flavour of Quinoa is strong but what a nutritious meal and a quick one too!

Hi Priya, Thanks for a great recipe. I made these idlis for breakfast today using the tricolor quinoa from Trader Joe's and followed your recipe to the T and made idlis (larger in size than the ones pictured) and my husband that always rushes through his breakfast stopped and ate 4 large idlis at one shot! Need I say more =)
